Hard Numbers: Half a million EU citizens in limbo in post-Brexit Britain

7: Days after a new prime minister-designate took office in Iraq, seven protesters were killed at an anti-government sit-in in the city of Najaf. Supporters of Moqtada al-Sadr, the powerful cleric with a cult-like following who backs the new PM, threw Molotov cocktails and stabbed demonstrators.


138: At least 138 people deported by the US back to El Salvador in recent years were killed after arriving there, according to Human Rights Watch. The grim tally comes as the Trump administration seeks to tighten restrictions on Central American asylum-seekers.

500,000: Some half a million EU citizens in Britain are yet to apply for "settled status," which would allow them to stay in the country after Brexit is complete. The British government has touted this as a fair scheme, but critics say EU citizens in Britain face losing benefits such as healthcare.

3,000: Several schools in northern Mozambique did not open for the new academic year because of the surge of jihadist terror attacks. The closure affects some 3,000 pupils in Cabo Delgado, the gas rich province that's become a hotbed of Islamist violence.
